Ed Sheeran Says Love Is Like Cheesecake

Ed Sheeran Says Love Is Like Cheesecake

Everyone gather around and listen up, because Ed Sheeran is giving out love advice.

The 24-year-old British musician chatted with Seventeen mag for their Hot Guys November 2014 issue and is giving us possibly the best advice when it comes to love. Check it:

On how you shouldn’t rush love: “Sometimes I wish I could go back and give my 17-year-old self love advice. I’d tell myself: ‘Ease into things slowly.’ If you have a piece of cheesecake, you don’t want to scarf it all down at once; you want to enjoy it. The same goes for love – don’t rush. Take time to figure out what you need in a relationship.”

On the butterflies of love: “I call this scared love. It sounds bad, but it’s not. I think we all get into situations where we’re terrified about letting ourselves fall in love because we don’t want to get hurt. But when you’re already friends and trust that person, that nervous feeling in the pit of your stomach is healthy. It means that there is something there – a deeper connection – that might be worth it. You just have to let yourself make the fall.”

On being true to yourself: “Quirks might seem weird when you’re young, but they make you stand out when you’re older and that’s an important thing.”
